Who would you say is the best player on the team going into 2019? Not for NFL potential or position-adjusted value. Just our best guy.
That was my order as well. Had Winfield been healthy recently he would've gotten stronger consideration for #1.I'd say definitely Tyler #1 and Coughlin #2
When he's healthy then i'd put Winfield #3 but he needs to prove he can stay healthy and that he's back to 100%. Then after those 3 you can make a case for a number of guys at 4. Rodney, Mo, Bateman, Barber etc.
I think he'd get less hype as an LB. Wouldn't have the same opportunity to get those big TFL and sack numbers if he wasn't on the line. A 3-4 OLB edge rushing type has always been Carter's most natural position, it is what he played mostly in high school when he got the big offers from OSU and Oregon, not as a traditional 4-3 LB.lots of offense bias ,but it is carter. If we had a better DL and he was still a linebacker, he would get so much more hype and looks IMO. He has done well but I still think he is a more natural LB.
Yeah, the RT spot vastly improved when we put Daniel in and his ceiling is certainly extremely high but I think our fans has a bit of a misconception of how good he actually was last year.I voted for Ty but Dunlop Jr is better than Faalele.
Shannon’s best runs are definitely better than Rodney’s best runs but Rodney is more consistent snap to snap due to having better vision and patience. Shannon’s combination of straight line speed and power is definitely better but I’d say Rodney is better at everything else.I actually agree with you. That is not a slight to Rodney, but if both are healthy I take Shannon over him every day of the week.
I share your thoughts almost exactly. Coughlin has been a rock for us on defense, and been willing to switch positions to go where we need bodies.Tough one, and could make a case for a number of different guys but I went with Carter Coughlin. Exciting to see that many offensive playmakers listed, just need a season of good health so that they can get on the field and show what they can do.
